I call people gay, and a *** all the time. I'm in no way shape or form hating on gay people. I thought we as a society had enough common sense to decipher between the two? It's not like we're spending a bunch of money to stop Gay people from having the same rights as other people (*cough* mormons). So if you want to be upset with someone, go yell at them, and hardcore christians who actively fund hate towards gays. And in the mean time, that reporter is such a ***.

That's pretty interesting. The deragatory term zipperheads, was coined when soldiers who ran over asian opposition noticed that the generic tread on the tires of their jeeps left a wound resembling a zipper.

Though there is some debate, the expression, "rule of thumb" may have its origin here:

A reference to this connection is found in 1881, in a book by Harriet H. Robinson: Massachusetts in the Woman Suffrage Movement. She says there, "By the English common law, her husband was her lord and master. He had the custody of her person, and of her minor children. He could 'punish her with a stick no bigger than his thumb,' and she could not complain against him.

The term "cracker" was supposedly coined by african american slaves because of the slave owners cracking the whip. Not sure on the accuracy of that one but it seems fairly likely

The term homophobic has become derogatory in itself by the PC crowd. There is no reason to believe that someone who calls another a ***, ***got, or whatever is actually afraid of homosexuals. They are just using the word ***got, that is all. But the PC crowd wants to make it look like they are scared individuals who are acting out of fear...which is what a phobia indicates. It is similar to those who are called racist for speaking against illegal immigration. What would they call someone who speaks out against gay illegals?

Regarding the UFC, I think they should curb the unprofessional behavior (speech included) if they want to be regarded as a legitiate mainstream professional sport by the non-MMA fan. But as long as their target market continues to tolerate it then they have no incentive to end it. Dana White sets the standard for others to follow.
